McKenna's RSV test was NEGATIVE! I'm so relieved! She still sounds awful, really awful, but at least it's not a virus and it should respond to the antibiotic she's on. We were supposed to go back to the doctor today to have her checked, but they decided to close early because of the snow and I was not about to take the entire crew to the doctor's office again, I really wanted to do it when Amy got off work. Oh well, we'll do it tomorrow.
McKenna has really started fighting her nebulizer. I'm not quite sure what to do about that other than just holding her down and making her do it. I wish the part she's supposed to put in her mouth was a teether, because then she would love it! Someone should invent that!
I hope all of you locals are enjoying the snow and that the rest of you southerners aren't too jealous! I really need to find a good place to take Christian sledding. Our yard has a slight slope and I thought it was quite pathetic when the kids started referring to it as a hill today. We need to find them a real hill around here. Let me know if you've got a suggestion that's within 15 min. of my house.

They have little pedi masks for nebulizers. Talk to your pediatrician...you should be able to get one.

I am jealous of your snow, we never get any anymore. Even if it did snow, we have absolutely NO hills around here to slide down...oh well. Bring on Summer and the beach westher.

I'm SO glad to hear that her test was negative. There's been several babies here that have come down with it in the last month, so ptl for good news!
